Young Leader Meeting
Bringing a Vision for Mobility and Detroit to Life
About This Meeting
Exclusively for DEC Young Leader Members
To continue to lead as a mobility industry trailblazer, Detroit needed to develop a world-class innovation ecosystem. And Michigan Central is creating just that – advancing mobility technologies and shaping programs that address barriers to social and economic good for Detroit and the world.
Later this month, Michigan Central is opening its first anchor building on its 30-acre site – The Book Depository – that also is now home to Newlab Detroit’s headquarters, a center of invention originally from Brooklyn, New York, applying innovation to some of the world’s most complex challenges in mobility, energy, and materials with hundreds of startups, entrepreneurs, and engineers. In partnership between Michigan Central and Newlab, this building will serve as a platform catalyzing Detroit’s evolution into a mobility tech center.
Join Mary Culler and Carolina Pluszczynski to discuss the massive Michigan Central undertaking from launching The Book Depository to continued renovation of Michigan Central Station, and hear them describe their work to make it all happen.
After the program, get an exclusive tour of the newly restored Book Depository building.
